Another Mouse

Another mouse
Inside the house
Caught by just his tail
Tried to run
That son of a gun
But the clatter left a trail.

Caught like a rat
In a trap
How could I let him go?
That I did
Outside in the cold blue snow
I did, I really did let him go.

If he lives is up to him
For it’s not
For me to know
I just let a mouse
That was in the house
I just let him go.

So if you see a mouse
With tape upon his tail
He is the one I did let go!

Wouldn’t It Be Nice

March 22, 2017

Wouldn’t it be nice
If the world laughed
No one cried and in the sea
No fish, no lives
No one
No one died.

Wouldn’t it be nice
If the world turned
Looking at itself
Making no excuses, no lies
Just told the truth
With open-hearted sighs.

Wouldn’t it be nice
If the world alone
Gave all the happiness
Needed to survive
Holding everyone in a grasp
So tender, so alive.

Wouldn’t it be nice, Wouldn’t it be nice

Haven’t Heard

Haven’t heard
The end
Haven’t heard
The start
Waiting in between

Waiting

To hear my heart.

Spring is here
Is a part
Nestled
In a beginning
Full
Waiting to start.

May My Soul Find The Secrets

Crossing at Nanticoke Creek ~ photo by Patrice

May my soul find the secrets
Hidden deep in my heart
May the pleasure never
Ever, ever depart.

May I find justice
For the things unfairly done
And may the sun shine
On all those I love
Each and everyone.

May I find the strength
To stand up straight
And not waiver
In the thoughts
That can make me see
Greatness
Greatness in all of thee.

Yes
May my soul believe
And see
All that is wondrous
In this secret place
Called me.

If I feel my heart weep
My soul cry
Let me be in a place
Where good ones lie.

This Lady

March 14, 2017

This Lady

In another place, another time
This lady
Was my nursery rhyme.

She held me close, she kept me far
She taught me to believe
In my star.
